Kane's inspiration for his SS14 collection was 'sterilized flowers', a theme which evolved throughout the collection with startling complexity. First came a set of pieces with teardrop petal shapes cut out and pinned into the material, then floral prints and sweaters emblazoned with the word 'flower'. The dresses here were more wearable than usual, more feminine, more flirty, more fun. Three dresses in crisp white cut across with mint green were spot on summer cocktail dressing; they also continued the dominant white palette we've seen this season.
However Kane is nothing if not an innovator. It's impossible to watch one of his shows without expecting to see something new, fresh and exciting. Here we received a set of looks in shimmery foil material which frayed round the edges and marbled colours; the interesting part is in watching how the clothes move. The core Spring Summer basics were here; white, florals, sheer panelling etc. But Kane reworked and redeveloped them in new ways, once again putting himself at the forefront of the fashion pack.
